Bill’s Solar Tiny House Update

I wanted to give you an update on Bill’s Solar Tiny House. You can view the first post here. Bill is constructing Michael Janzen’s free plans of the Solar Tiny House pretty much by himself.

Bill just completed installing the windows with some help from his father. He was able to complete the installation one day. Below are some updated pictures of the house with the sheathing completed. The house wrap in place and the roof installed.


Windows Installed

If I have done a post on your tiny house that you have started and you have an update for me, please let me know. I get rather back logged with all the great ideas and projects coming in and I am unable to stay on top of all the projects at times. Please send me an email with pictures and I will do an update on your project too.

Thanks for posting the update Kent. The work is moving along, but I sure am looking forward to finishing the outside so I can begin the inside work.

I’ll be interested to see what it looks like when you’re done. Where are you building this?

[…] The other 8×16 Tiny Solar House that I know about is being built by Bill Brooks who plans to take his up to Alaska for an extended visit. You can see some early progress photos of Bill’s house at Tiny House Blog. […]

Has anyone completed an 8 x 16 Tiny Solar House on wheels? I need an estimate on weight, my current vehicle tows up to 5700lbs. Looking to build the shell and add interior in stages.
